My step dad had a couple of these many years ago. I seem to remember he spent a lot of time fixing them lol

Sounds good, look forwards to seeing how it comes along, that 340 is f**king awesome!

Cracking find that, begging for a drop and banded steelies.

In that last picture your lad looks like he’s thinking- “I’m not sure, but Dad said this car’s cool”.

Not gonna lie, i wouldnt put my wife in that thing, let alone my kids, if i had any.

Ignoring the fact that its not really my scene, surely compared to modern machinery, its not particularly safe?

I don’t think it’s safe by modern standards. To be fair, it’s probably not safe by 80s standards either.

Weren't Volvo famous for their safety innovations? They were crash testing cars to a much higher standard than anyone else way before ENCAP came along, I bet that thing holds up way better in an accident than the contemporaries of it's day, tbh it probably holds up better than a Saxo or a mk1 Clio, also there's loads of classics that would fold like a empty Coke can in an accident, doesn't stop people enjoying their classic Mini's, mk1 Golf's or classic Fords.

They have massive side impact bars, probably 10 year before everyone else

New cars are supposed to crumble, taking the force of the impact. Old volvos were build like tanks and thos transferred crash forces onto the passengers

Just have to make sure you crash your classic Volvo into a new car then, problem solved.

First hand experience crashing one of these in the 90's, it held up very well.
Spotted a GLT at Kippax service station this morning and a 940, I think the owner works in the MoT bay.
